This page is dedicated to Merlin, the lovely pool bartender. This image was taken in January 2014. Merlin was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident on November 3rd, 2014, her 39th birthday. We missed her very much during our 2015 vacation. Rest in peace.
Carolyn and I keep returning to this heavenly Cuban resort in Varadaro. The grounds are beautifully kept, the gorgeous infinity pool overlooks the ocean and the Cigar Bar is a perfect spot from which to watch the sunset. The staff are very friendly, always cheerful and service-oriented. We met so many lovely guests, mostly from Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, and B.C. and enjoyed making new friendships. In 2015, we had the pleasure of meeting Stephane and Claudia, a charming couple from Quebec, shown the first image.
